Time for this week’s dinner ideas! It was a really busy week with a lot of events, but I loved the time we had to eat together at home.

Our weekly menu will give you some good dinner ideas

Time for this week’s dinner ideas! While we had a lot more meals out/leftovers than normal, I still wanted to share what a busy week of dinners looks like for us.

Here’s a quick review of our weekly dinners: 

MondayHamburgers + Roasted Green Beans

The boys requested hamburgers this week, and typically I would make them with fries, but after a week of Thanksgiving dinner and lots of other big meals, I went with leftover green beans and roasted them up for a slightly healthier side dish. Yum!

Tuesday: Breakfast Burritos

These are a super easy dinner that I make often. Everyone loves them! I don’t really use a recipe — just ground sausage, scrambled eggs, and cheese, with a little bit of salsa.

Wednesday: Tortellini Sausage Soup

This is one of our all time favorite soups. It’s hearty and delicious and easy to toss together. Perfect for soup season!

Thursday: Turkey Noodle Soup (leftovers)

I made turkey noodle soup with the leftover turkey (and homemade broth from the turkey carcass) after Thanksgiving, and we had a giant pot of it, so we’re doing leftovers to get through it!

Friday: Order in Pizza

Saturday: Barbacoa Tacos

Usually we eat out or order in on Saturdays, but since we ordered pizza on Friday, we did crockpot tacos for Saturday dinner. I love a meal that can cook all day and be ready in the evening!

Sunday: Short Rib Bolognese with homemade noodles

I haven’t made this recipe in a while, and it’s been a while since I made homemade noodles! This is a great Sunday dinner!

Sunday Dessert: Chocolate Scotcheroos

One of our favorite family desserts!

Weekly Menu, January 29 – February 4

Time for this week’s dinner ideas! This week’s meals were perfectly easy, quick, and delicious for a busy schedule!

Our weekly menu will give you some good dinner ideas!

This week we made a bunch of simple, delicious meals that used up leftovers and were a hit for the whole family.

Here’s a quick review of our weekly dinners: 

Monday: Paninis

I’ve started doing sandwiches or breakfast on Mondays and it makes a crazy first day back to work and school feel a little more manageable. We don’t have a panini maker, but we just popped our sandwiches in the waffle iron and that worked perfectly!

Tuesday: Loaded Nachos and Roasted Asparagus

My 7 year old requested nachos this week, and in an effort to make them a little more robust for a full meal, we did loaded nachos, plus a side of roasted asparagus. We did a “build your own” and just put all the ingredients on the counter so everyone could put what they wanted on their plates, then we each microwaved them individually. Super easy and quick weeknight meal! It was especially easy because I used leftover ground beef from tacos last week, so it was great for using up leftovers!

Wednesday: Tortellini Sausage Soup and Corn Muffins and Caesar Salad

This is one of my all time favorite soups. It’s easy, flavorful, and hearty without feeling heavy. I served with leftover corn muffins from dinner last week, and a caesar salad.

Thursday: Homemade Mac & Cheese and Brussel Sprouts

Thursday is our pasta night, and the boys requested baked Mac and cheese. I made this yummy recipe and made it ahead of time so I could easily pop it in the oven for dinner. I served with roasted Brussels sprouts.

Friday: BBQ Pizza with Canadian Bacon with Caesar Salad

We had some leftover Canadian Bacon from a recent meal, so I was planning to do Hawaiian pizza, but everyone requested we do our normal BBQ chicken pizza and add Canadian bacon. Delish! I always use Mel’s kitchen cafe’s pizza dough and it’s easy and so good. For our pizza, I do BBQ sauce, fiesta blend cheese, grilled chicken, frozen corn, fresh jalapeños, and then top with crispy onions after it’s cooked. I served with a caesar salad.

Saturday: Out to Eat- Family Date Night

Sunday: Cafe Rio Burritos

This is one of my all time favorite recipes. It takes 24 hours to cook, but it’s worth the effort and is so delicious. Since none of my family is a huge fan of the cafe rio salads, we just do burritos and they’re fantastic. I serve with beans, cilantro lime rice, and cheese.
